Disability benefits may end if one's illness improves

One of the requirements of meeting the Social Security Administration's definition of disability is that the disabling condition of the applicant is expected to last for at least a year. Many individuals who receive disability benefits maintain them for many years because their ailments are life-long afflictions that they must endure. However, an Oklahoma resident may see their disability benefits cut off if a review of their disability demonstrates that their illness or ailment has medically improved.

Paralysis may qualify a person for disability benefits

An illness can be a long-term, disabling condition

This year, influenza has hit the nation at an alarming pace and caused thousands of people to suffer miserable symptoms and miss days of work, school and other important commitments. Unfortunately, Oklahoma was not left out. Luckily though, for most, rest and time give them relief from their ailments. Illnesses, such as the flu, common cold and other transient diseases, are short-term issues that cause conditions that people can get over. Other illnesses, however, can be serious and last a lifetime, preventing people from leading normal lives.
